USA vs Colombia Match Weather

Goalkeeper: Matt Turner

Rating: 4 Turner had a challenging game, facing a powerful opener from Jhon Arias and an exceptional bicycle kick from Rafael Santos Borre. While some goals could have been saved, Turner was often let down by his defense, making it difficult to fault him entirely for the scoreline.

Right Back: Joe Scally

Rating: 4.5 Scally faced a tough opponent in Liverpool’s Luis Diaz but managed to hold his own for the most part. Although he should have marked Borre more closely on the second goal, Scally’s performance showed potential as a replacement for Sergino Dest.

Center Back: Chris Richards

Rating: 4 Richards struggled in the air and faded as the game progressed. He maintained spatial awareness but couldn’t significantly impact the match, highlighting areas for improvement.

Center Back: Tim Ream

Rating: 4 Ream’s position was strong for the opening goal block, but his lack of agility was evident against Colombia’s fast players, leading to a decline in performance as the game progressed.

Left Back: Antonee Robinson

Rating: 3.5 Robinson’s sliding challenge led to Colombia’s opener, but he wasn’t solely at fault. He delivered a brilliant ball to Balogun but showed sloppy play that nearly cost the U.S. another goal.

Defensive Midfielder: Johnny Cardoso

Rating: 2 Cardoso made a crucial challenge to deny Colombia’s second goal but was alarmingly absent in marking for the third goal, highlighting a significant lapse in defensive responsibility.

Center Midfielder: Weston McKennie

Rating: 4 McKennie’s positioning issues prevented him from finding a rhythm. While adequate in maintaining possession, he failed to contribute significantly to the attack, highlighting the need for a more structured role.

Center Midfielder: Gio Reyna

Rating: 4 Reyna’s hesitation contributed to Colombia’s opener. He showed skill in tight spaces but was not as involved as expected, indicating some rust and a need for more game time to regain form.

Right Winger: Tim Weah

Rating: 4 Weah scored a fine goal but negated it with a costly turnover that led to Colombia’s fourth goal, encapsulating a mixed performance.

Striker: Folarin Balogun

Rating: 5.5 Balogun was a bright spot, making aggressive runs and providing a well-weighted assist for Weah’s goal. He was the most effective U.S. player on the pitch, showing promise for future matches.

Left Winger: Christian Pulisic

Rating: 5 Pulisic threatened with a header and made some solid passes but was largely ineffective in testing Colombia’s defense before being subbed off at halftime.


Haji Wright

Rating: 5 Wright was lively and came close with a header early in the second half, making strong runs.

Cameron Carter-Vickers

Rating: 2 Carter-Vickers’ defending was questionable, particularly on Colombia’s fourth and fifth goals, where his errors were costly.

Malik Tillman

Rating: 4 Tillman made no positive impact after coming on, with Colombia already in control.

Yunus Musah

Rating: 5 Musah struggled to find his footing after picking up an early knock and was largely ineffective.

Ricardo Pepi and Luca de la Torre

Ratings: N/A Both late substitutes had minimal involvement in the game.

Manager: Gregg Berhalter

USMNT head coach Gregg Berhalter described the match as a wake-up call rather than a lesson learned. The team’s performance was sloppy, and they appeared unprepared. Berhalter’s lineup, with an average age of 25 years and 237 days and an average of 32.9 caps, was among the oldest and most experienced under his tenure. Despite this, the team failed to deliver against Colombia, underscoring the need for significant improvements before their upcoming match against Brazil and the Copa America.

With a record of 43-14-12 in 69 matches as USMNT head coach, Berhalter must ensure the team shows more effort and cohesiveness in their next outings to avoid entering the Copa America with low expectations.
